Selected by Indie Booksellers for the May 2010 Indie Next List
“Ten people, 10 stories spanning more than four decades and crossing the Atlantic Ocean. It is left up to the reader to determine what parts of which stories are vital and who is connected to whom in order to answer the final question: Who is the most important link in the chain? The link that, if broken, would result in the whole architecture crumbling to the ground? Intricate, crafty, and fascinating!”
-- Stacie M. Williams, Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, WI
